Mornington Tips for Saturday, September 30
BEST BET 🏆 (WIN)
Race 8 No. 3 MISS GALORE- ($3.70)
MISS GALORE can go on with the job in Race 8. The Mick Price and Michael Kent Jnr-trained galloper resumed with a win at Geelong on September 15 in a BenchMark 64 over the 1221m. She was posted three-wide in the run but was strong late. The daughter of Per Incanto rises slightly in grade and at her last preparation she was a big improver on benchmark figures at her second run when going from a Ballarat Maiden win to a close 5th at Sandown in a Saturday race. She then ran 3rd at Listed level in Adelaide before heading for the paddock. Wiremu Pinn rides and claims the 2kg.
NEXT BEST 🥈 (WIN)
Race 5 No 2 ARAVENE- ($3.90)
ARAVENE should be hard to beat in Race 5. The Tom Dabernig-trained galloper has not won in over a year but was racing in much harder company than this at his last couple of preparations. The five-year-old resumed with a solid 3rd at Sandown over the 1400m then rose to the 1800m, running 7th behind Taramansour over the 1800m, beaten less than two lengths. She comes into this third up and has been a significant improver on benchmark figures at this stage of her last two preparations when up to the 2000m. Damian Lane rides and is striking at 25%, providing a 32% profit on turnover for punters.
NEXT BEST 🥈
Race 6 No. 9 PANTELONE ($4.40)
PANTELONE can go close in Race 6. The Godolphin galloper looks to have come back in good order this time in and broke his maiden when resuming over the 1100m at Bendigo before heading to Sandown and filling the exacta behind Coincide over the 1200m on August 16. The winner out of that has since run ok against some big names, while the 3rd placegetter went on to win at Bendigo then was 5th at Listed level at Flemington. The son of Street Boss comes in with six weeks in between runs and draws perfectly in barrier 3.
